We also stayed at the Courtesy Inn in San Simeon -- and like others, weren't expecting too much by the look of the restaurant, but we were extremely surprised. The Caesar salad with blackened salmon was incredible, not too overly spicy, but just right. The hot food was hot, the cold food was cold, everything was properly delivered, and it was a very very wonderful experience, to the point where we went back the next night, and brought the rest of our party, and they were also very very pleased. Can't rave enough!!!!
